Editorial Reviews

Eat and Fight.


Upon returning from a pilgrimage across Japan, the warrior Toramaru arrives with tales of seven epic battles against Japan’s most legendary fighters. As Toramaru’s philosophy dictates that he ’know the enemy by eating his food, ’ each masterfully-choreographed fight is preceded by a helping of his prey’s favorite dish.


Designated successor to Master Gensai and leading proponent of the all-round martial-arts discipline, The Cosmic Way, Toramaru tells the tales of The Seven Deadly Battles as Master Gensai eagerly listens to the lavish and violent details of Toramaru’s adventures.

2 1/2 STARS -- A PARODY AS WELL AS HOMAGE --- MANY VIEWERS WON'T LIKE THIS ONE REGARDLESS.

First, you are probably asking yourself what a Japanese film has to do with Kung Fu. Well, it is actually a nod (I fall short of calling it an homage) to the old seventies classic Kung Fu films where highly choreographed and acrobatic fights, not to mention horribly over acted dialog, was absolutely expected. Hang with me on this because I am not criticizing the film the same way you may think.

THE PLOT: Toramaru has returned from a pilgrimage across Japan as instructed by his martial arts master Gensai. He relates to Gensai the details of each fight he encounters, but makes Master Gensai guess which fighting style was used each time by describing his pre-fight meal. You see, Toramaru believes he gains inspiration for a fight by eating a food that somehow relates to his opponent. The purpose of this pilgrimage is to defeat and gain knowledge from the masters of different styles. Toramaru also confiscates a scroll from each fighter that contains the essence of each style.

Ok, so it sounds a little silly so far with the food and all, but it's supposed to be a little silly right! The movie starts out on a reasonably serious note with a bucolic fall day depicting Toramaru's return to the Jinja or Dojo where his master resides. So far the audience is just thinking this is a slightly bad B movie throwback to those seventies movies I mentioned. The acting is B movie quality so it's not entirely obvious that it's intentionally bad in my opinion. I also speak Japanese, but I don't think that aided me in my perception. The vocal tone of Toramaru and Master Gensai are reasonably serious for a B movie. However, each situation builds on itself.

Bushido Man was a good film as far as the fights go, but as for the story, there's not much there.

In the film, Taramaru returns to his master after visiting several other masters in various disciplines. It was Taramaru's mission to challenge and beat them, so he could gather up their scrolls, which chronicles the particulars of their styles. The majority of the film has Taramaru humorously describing what he ate before he challenged each master, then he fights them. The idea being, that you will know your opponent by what he eats. This helps Taramaru get inside their heads, so later on, when he fights them, he can mimic what they do in order to win the fight.

Most of the fights were filmed fairly well and included a Kung Fu Master, a Stick Master, a Nun Chuck master, a Sword Master, a Yakuza Knife Fighter, a Gun Master, and another discipline I can only describe as a Gun Fu Master. During each of the fights, Taramaru watches and learns from his opponents so he can eventually defeat them. Some of the fights were more serious than others, but the film doesn't take itself too seriously. In fact, the Nun Chuck Fight turned out to be more of a joke, and the Gun Master was a ridiculous wannabe cowboy, who holstered a six shooter at his side. In any case, the film still managed to put on a good show. And it did add a "trick" ending.

I have to admit that I enjoyed this film. It was a Martial Arts comedy of sorts. And the martial arts were really the highlight here. The story is almost nonexistent, but there is still enough to hold the film together. In a way, this film reminded me of High Kick Girl, where Kei (played by Rina Takeda) goes around challenging other fighters. In Bushido Man however, Taramaru's motives are a lot more honorable.
